Listening: Social Aid and Pleasure Club by the Subdudes. Those are two things we'd all like to see plenty more of.

Reading (perhaps quality): Trying yet again to read The Diary of Anais Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934. Made it through about 20 pages last night.

Reading (definitely pulp): Nada.

Drinking: Tap water.

Things I learned today -

  • At about 7:30 am - if you're on the metro and listening to your iPod loud enough you can be aware of your sniffling but not really hear it. Its not nice for other people but some mornings that's about as polite as I can be.

  • At about 11 am - A black cherry cough drop + a cup of ginger tea = less nasty than one would originally think. A black cherry cough drop + a cup of coffee, on the other hand? Surprisingly much less pleasant.

  • At about 4:30 pm - "Electric Donkeys" is a term in the Thesaurus for Graphic Materials (for you non-librarian types, its a tool for indexing visual materials by subject and genre/format). Not that I doubt images of electric donkeys exist, I'm just surprised that there are enough of them to warrant an entire heading of their own.

  • About 15 minutes ago - if they're all pushed up and out, look down unexpectedly and even your own breasts can startle you.

Still coughing some but feeling infinitely better - the cough is with me mostly at night, but enough during the day to remind me its still there. The sneezing around enough to be almost cute. Almost.

(above) My desk. Look - no tissues in sight (or even just out of the frame)!

Lots going on this weekend - looking forward to seeing folks old and new. Can't wait!

Doing (life and related tasks): Planning out the weekend, trying to get realistic not pessimistic about what I can get done.

Doing (crafty stuff): Making vows to write this weekend (see above).

Wanting: The final(?) bits of this cold gone.

Anticipating: Until Three Kings is done, you know its what I'm looking forward to.

last one everything else what I'm working on on to the dailies all (well some) about me back to the index page next one
